New Video Showcases Harley-Davidson X440’s Bass Exhaust Note

The upcoming Harley-Davidson X440 is due to be unveiled on July 3, 2023, and will be powered by a massive single motor. So while the roar of a V-Twin Harley is unlikely, it’s a raspy exhaust note to keep the spirit of the brand in check. However, we’ll have to sample the X440’s exhaust note ourselves to tell you more about it.

In terms of power, the Harley X440 will draw power from a 440 cc air-cooled single-cylinder oil-cooled engine. The engine is expected to produce around 35 hp and 30 Nm of torque, although official figures have yet to be released. The bike will feature an inverted fork at the front and dual shock absorbers at the rear, while stopping performance will come from disc brakes with dual-channel ABS at both ends. The bike will be fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels shod with MRF Zapper Hyke tyres.

Visually, the X440 also borrows several design cues from the older Harley XR roadster. Pictures show wide handlebars, centered footpegs and a long, wide seat, all of which promise a comfortable riding position. The bike is a mix of old and new, with round headlights with LED DRLs, teardrop fuel tank, digital console and more.

Harley-Davidson is targeting the 350cc vintage motorcycle market dominated by Royal Enfield.The positioning of the new X440 may be higher than that of RE, and the price should be around ¥250,000 (ex-showroom). That said, Harley’s most affordable offering will also face competition from the upcoming Triumph roadster co-built with Bajaj, while RE is also said to be working on a Hunter 450 that could arrive in a few years.
